“... like everything else, even the most inviolable or obscure phenomena eventually find their way from good dreams into bad, or from bad dreams into the wholly abysmal.”
Thomas Ligotti - “The Troubles of Dr. Thoss”

Guardian Review of SOADD and Grimscribe
Jun 30, 2016 - 10:19 AM - by Arthur Staaz

Excellent review.

"These may not be horror stories at all, but more like evil little mantras, leading you into dark, half-conscious speculations about the frailty of human identity and purpose."

Vastarien: A Literary Journal Is Open for Submissions
May 18, 2016 - 12:29 PM - by Arthur Staaz

Vastarien. The forbidden tome – an entryway into “…a place where everything was transfixed in the order of the unreal… Each passage he entered in the book both enchanted and appalled him with images and incidents so freakish and chaotic that his usual sense of these terms disintegrated along with everything else. Rampant oddity seemed to be the rule of the realm; imperfection became the source of the miraculous – wonders of deformity and marvels of miscreation. There was horror, undoubtedly. But it was a horror uncompromised by any feeling of lost joy or thwarted redemption; rather, it was a deliverance by damnation. And if Vastarien was a nightmare, it was a nightmare transformed in spirit by the utter absence of refuge: nightmare made normal.”

Editor-in-Chief Matt Cardin and Senior Editors Jon Padgett, Brian Poe and Kevin Moquin are pleased to announce that Vastarien: A Literary Journal is now open for submissions. Vastarien aspires to be a source of critical study and creative response to the corpus of Thomas Ligotti, as well as associated authors and creative work. We plan to do this through scholarly and critical works of nonfiction, literary horror fiction, poetry and artwork. Please visit our website for more information. And stay tuned for more news as we review submissions and head toward a launch date.

Thomas Ligotti’s Uncanny Horror and the Future of Holocaust Fiction
Feb 29, 2016 - 1:30 PM - by Dr. Locrian
Until a couple of years ago, Thomas Ligotti’s name was barely a sinister whisper amidst the larger horror community, only known by true genre connoisseurs. He was the top-shelf stuff, his writing reserved for readers with palates supposedly developed enough to digest his works of unease and dread. That all changed with the New Weird’s creep into public consciousness—Jeff VanderMeer’s best-selling Southern Reach Trilogy, along with critical and financial darlings like The Leftovers and American Horror Story and Nic Pizzolatto’s True Detective, whose premiere season draws the most directly (some would say a little too directly) from Ligotti’s essays and fiction. Ligotti’s own popularity has risen sufficiently that Penguin Classics has recently republished some of his most acclaimed works, Songs of a Dead Dreamer and Grimscribe.
